Prof Stephen Cook is the Professor of Defence Systems. He has had a varied career that commenced with ten years in the telecommunications and aerospace industries in the UK and Australia, working as a design engineer and technical manager. Over that period, he designed 13 products or systems that were sold around the world, some in high volume. He subsequently joined the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) rising to Research Leader Military Information Networks in 1994 responsible for the management and scientific leadership of 70 research staff. In 1997 he was seconded to the University of South Australia where he was appointed DSTO Professor of Systems Engineering and led a variety of research concentrations in that discipline culminating in the being appointed the founding Director of the Defence and Systems Institute. Over his 17 years at UniSA, he pursued a wide span of research interests including systems mathematical modelling, systems engineering of C2 systems, systems approaches for defence capability development, systems of systems engineering, and theoretical frameworks to support the coherent teaching of systems engineering. He has supervised 25 successful research students, mostly PhDs. At UniSA, Prof Cook was responsible for overseeing the introduction of several master’s degrees in systems engineering and project management and actively taught in all of these. In 2014 became the Principal of the consulting firm Creative Systems Engineering that undertakes management consulting in systems engineering and related disciplines primarily in the defence sector. He retains his interests in academic matters through his part-time appointment at the University of Adelaide and his visiting appointment at Loughborough University, UK. Prof Cook is listed in Who’s Who in Australia, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering (USA) and Who’s Who in the World for his contributions to systems engineering. He has also received recognition through a variety of awards such as the Secretary of Defence’s Award for Achievement, Engineers Australia Engineering Excellence Award for Research, best paper awards, and his election to the small groups of INCOSE Fellows and Full Members of the Omega Alpha Association honour society in systems engineering. He is also a Fellow of Engineers Australia, and has been a Fellow of the IET (UK), and a President of the Systems Engineering Society of Australia.
